HEK 293 cells stably transfected with the HA-tagged human TLR10 gene
3-7 x 10e6 cells
293/hTLR10-HA cells were obtained by stable transfection of HEK293 cells with the pUNO-hTLR10-HA plasmid which expresses the human TLR10 gene fused at the 3'end to the influenza hemaglutinine (HA).
The control cell line for 293/hTLR10-HA cells is 293/null.
Antibiotic resistance: blasticidin
Growth medium: DMEM, 4.5 g/l glucose, 2-4 mM L-glutamine, 10% (v/v) fetal bovine serum, 50 U/ml penicillin, 50 μg/ml streptomycin, 100 μg/ml Normocin™

TLR10 is the last human member of the toll-like receptor family discovered so far, and its function and direct ligand are still unknown . TLR10 is preferentially expressed in lung and in B-lymphocytes. Phylogenetic analysis indicates that among all the human TLRs, TLR10 is most closely related to TLR1 and TLR6; the overall amino acid identity is 50% and 49%, respectively. These observations suggest that TLR10 is involved in the immune response like other known TLRs. TLR10 is a potential asthma candidate gene since TLR10 genetic variation were shown to contribute to asthma risk .
